The open structure of COPAN FLOQSwabs™ acts like a soft brush that efficiently dislodges and collects cells and mucus, then releases the sample immediately when immersed in viral transport medium. COPAN flocked swabs are easy to use and less invasive causing minimal discomfort for the patient when compared to nasopharyngeal washes/aspirates or nasal washes. For more information about COPAN 3mL viral transport media or helpful videos on nasopharyngeal swab specimen collection, visit the COPAN’s UTM® page.
